I received so many hate letters when I breast-fed a starving baby in Africa. I was in Sierra Leone in 2009 and I was weaning my child at that time - she was not there with me.

My father wasn't perfect. He had a temper. I took some of that. He would snap, but the older he got, he started calming down.
